In Europe, EDPR added 289 MW to its consolidated wind installed capacity to reach 4,266 MW.
2012 marked two major milestones in EDPR’s history with the completion of its first wind farms in Italy and the addition of its first ever solar photovoltaic plants.
Portfolio growth in Europe came largely from outside Iberia, with 113 MW (22%).
Romania saw growth in both wind and solar installations, with 26 MW added in wind and 39 MW in solar PV. With this achievement EDPR consolidated its top tier position in the Romanian renewable energy market.
EDPR commissioned its first wind farm in Italy during fourth quarter of 2012. The 20 MW wind farm is located in the town of Villa Castelli, in the Apulia region. In the same quarter, EDPR completed its second wind farm, Pietragalla, located in the Basilicata region, for another 20MW.
In France, EDPR completed the extension of the Prouville wind farm by adding 8 MW.
EDPR completed 110 MW in Spain, achieving a total installed capacity in Spain of over 2.3 GW while consolidating its market leader position in Catalonia, with the addition of 48 MW and surpassing 300 MW in total installed capacity in this autonomous region. December 31st 2012 marked the end date for the completion of awarded capacity under the pre- assignation registry. EDPR was able to successfully complete 100% of its projects in time, ensuring that they benefit from the current remuneration scheme.
Through ENEOP in Portugal, a consortium to develop 1.2 GW in which EDPR holds a 40% stake, 64 MW were added in 2012 to the total 390 MW attributable to EDPR at year-end. Moreover, EDPR increased the capacity via overpowering of an existing wind farm by 2 MW.
